Program

Day 1: Transfer from Kampala to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

After your early morning breakfast in Kampala, you will be briefed about the safari, then head to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest afterward while driving through the Switzerland of Uganda, Kabale. This is a journey of about seven hours, so please be prepared. Later, you shall make a stopover at Uganda's Equator for a fantastic photo shoot before proceeding to Bwindi for an evening nature walk that will lead you to the Munyaga Waterfall and have a chance to see primates such as the grey-cheeked mangabey blue monkeys and others species.

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking at Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

You will have early morning breakfast to give you the needed energy for today's adventure. This will be the day when you meet the incredible Uganda mountain gorillas. You will take your packed lunch and all the necessary gear to track the rare mountain gorilla, one of the most exciting wildlife experiences while heading to the ranger headquarters for the gorilla activity briefing.

The tracking will tend to take about six hours depending on how fast the habituated gorilla family is found. With the help of experienced guides, you will search and find a fully habituated gorilla family and spend time encountering them. After finding a gorilla family, you will have up to one hour to stay with as you watch these adorable species play and associate with each other.

It's amazing to listen and observe the gorillas in the forest while they marvel and grumble at each other. This will be your opportunity to take charming pictures with these cousins, but please remember not to scare them. Other mammals that you will have a maximum possibility to sightsee here include the rare golden monkey, buffalo, elephants, black-fronted dikers, bushbucks, leopards, and giant forest hogs. You will return to your lodge for a relaxed afternoon or an optional forest walk after.

Day 3: Wildlife safari at Queen Elizabeth National Park

After having your early breakfast, you will check out of your accommodation with the memories of the gorilla tracking involvement and you will be off for your Uganda wildlife safari to Queen Elizabeth National Park. The journey to Queen Elizabeth National Park will take you through as you experience the tree climbing lion sector of Ishasha en-route as you proceed to the lodging of your choice in Ishasha or around the Mweya part of Queen Elizabeth National Park.

After having your lovely lunch and a little relaxation, you will embark on a remarkable afternoon game drive in search of the park's mammals including lions, leopards, elephants, hyenas, bush pigs, monkeys, warthogs, and antelopes of different kids. After retreating from this activity, you will return to your favorite lodge for relaxation, dinner, and overnight.

Day 4: Wildlife and game viewing at Queen Elizabeth National Park

In the morning, you will have breakfast at your lodge at Queen Elizabeth National Park then you shall go for a game drive. While on the game drive, you will watch wildlife on their way back from the night hunt and these will include lumbering elephants, lions, and running warthogs with tails raised up. Also to be remembered, Queen Elizabeth National Park offers stunning views of the Rwenzori Mountains.

After that, it will be time to return to your accommodation for relaxation and lunch. Please do not forget to change your camera batteries since you will be going on a boat trip which is the park's highlight for every visitor. The Kazinga Channel is shared by Lake Edward and Lake Gorge, running 40 kilometers between the two lakes.

In the afternoon, you will have a boat ride or boat cruise. The channel is a home to many birds seen in the middle of the boat cruise, school of hippopotamus, buffaloes, and warthogs. Nothing like the swarms of pelicans on the shore, birds flying all over the channel, and the boat will take you slowly as you take your Uganda wildlife pictures along the shores. A rewarding game viewing in the afternoon, to say the least. You will return to your accommodation facility for dinner and a quiet evening at your lodge in the midst of the African savannah.

Day 5: Chimpanzee tour at Kyambura Gorge and drive to Kampala

In the morning, you will be transferred to Kyambura Gorge for your exciting chimpanzee tracking safari before you travel back to Kampala. Kyambura Gorge alone is worth a visit without tracking the chimps. You will spend an hour with chimpanzees that will be found there. You will then return to your lodge for lunch before your journey to Kampala. You will also stop at the equator for photos, gift, and craft shopping. You will reach Kampala in the evening hours. This will be the end of the safari.
